    Does anyone know if the questions asked at the pratice exam (prometric center) are compiled from the NBME's we all buy online? The website seems to infer that the questions are no different, I suppose meaning they pluck questions randomly from different NBME's. So to verify this, I emailed an NBME person, and they said the prometric q's are different. Not sure which one to believe. Much appreciated if someone could fill me in before I waste my time doing 200 questions I've already seen. Thanks

    The practice exam is 150 questions (the same 150 you can download from the usmle website/bulletin for free....link below)....they are not NBME questions. The reason I decided to take the practice test at the center was to figure out procedure/environment for the real thing. But if you just want the questions you can download them here.
